Tai Ping Wednesday 19 Jun 2013

APEX takes inspiration from ancestral ink brush painting. The expressionist pattern offers a gestural effect achieved through large-scale dark blue silk fading over a grey palette.

APEX is part of Tai Ping's Eclipse collection which is a contemporary interpretation of traditional Asian visual arts and accentuates the avant-garde aesthetic that inspires and influences Western culture. Through movement, scale, abstract forms and optical impression, Tai Ping captures the shift in perspective toward modern Asian influences, while embracing heritage and tradition.

Stylised brush strokes, ink drops and crayon impressions illustrate a focus on the hand of the artist. The collection features a delicate colour palette of grey, mint and gold accompanied by bolder shades of chartreuse. Sumptuous textures of wool and silk create matte and lustrous effects to capture light and motion within each design.
